A #movie #nerd #podcast hosted by standup comedian @Kevin Gootee and guest hosts. But in this unique podcast; they invite guests to come in and argue why some of the most financially successful, beloved or acclaimed films are trash. But here's the twist, the film must meet 1 of these criteria: widely beloved, financial success, or critically acclaimed. So no dunking on Friday the 13th part 8, we all know that's an egregious piece of s--.
We give a platform with those who have unpopular opinions to be bold enough to voice them. Some films that have faced scrutiny: Back to the Future, the Dark Knight, Toy Story, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, the Matrix, and Die Hard. Can the guests persuade us? Or do we rip them a new one? Give us a listen and we'll easily prove that we belong on any top movie podcast list.
No one is doing what we're doing and we're damn good at it. Everyone loves film debate and who better than 2 wiseasses from NJ? We throw plenty of fun segments in the mix: our favorite movie quotes, guessing the IMDB and Rotten Tomatoes scores, 5 fun facts, our readers have us ask our guests questions they'd like answered in "Ask a Gutter", we read critics 5 and 1 star reviews and our FAVORITE segment, reading Amazon 5 and 1 star reviews. You'll never go down a more fun rabbit hole than hearing crazy people asking for refunds while submitting their personal info for payment. Jeff Bezos isn't reading these comment sections, folks. We also thoroughly enjoy mocking snooty movie critics and their blowhard reviews. We get it, you have an English Lit degree.
Kevin and friends preside over these cases and see if their guests have made them change their minds or their scores. Check out this podcast dedicated to giving the most hilarious, witty, and funniest movie reviews and discussion you'll ever hear. We're gonna make you laugh, no doubt about that.
We serves you recommendations and commentary on the buzziest movies. Join a rotating cast of guest pop culture aficionados. We leaves room at the table for exploring a range of reactions and opinions on every bit of the pop universe. From lowbrow to highbrow to the stuff in between, they take it all with a shot of cheer. Specifically, the auteurs whose early successes afforded them the rare ‘blank check’ from Hollywood to produce passion projects. Each new miniseries, we delve into the works of film’s most outsized personalities in painstakingly hilarious detail. We started with hostile movie discussions and has evolved into hostile informative movie discussions. We don't always agree, and that's just fine. We talk about movies the same way you talk about movies and pop culture with your friends. Sometimes, we'll review movies that are poorly rated on Rotten Tomatoes, and try to ascertain whether or not those movies are accurately poorly rated, or maybe just didn’t get a fair shake. Sometimes, we'll discuss upcoming movies in the MCU! Film reviews, TV reviews, and all your conversation around movie and non-movie related stuff. Plus a whole bunch of recommendations to watch in cinemas, on all streaming services and on physical media. Us movie reviewers break down a variety of film franchises by dedicating a podcast to every single sequel, reboot, and spin-off in a series. In-depth conversations cover production history, literary sources, gossip, merchandising, and personal opinion with humor and critical insight. No cinematic universe is too obscure or sacred! Sometimes, we'll "ruin" a horror movie, from slashers to home invasions, creature features to the supernatural, they cover it all! Horror fans, scaredy cats, and film buffs are all welcome. Don’t just watch a movie; understand it. Don’t just hear a song; consider what it has to say. We break down a work of pop culture each week, exploring the big questions that great art can provoke, making some recommendations for you, and having a little fun along the way. The Kevins talk about the weird things they love—such as food heists, the perfect popcorn salt, and whether any art can truly be perfect. Listen for commentary on movies, TV shows, books, video games, and wherever else their conversation leads them. We've covered reviews, ranks, and recaps every movie in the biggest franchises including Marvel Studios, DC, Star Wars, Pixar, Harry Potter, Fast and Furious, Mission Impossible, Batman, Spider-Man, X-Men, Disney, Lord of the Rings, Godzilla, Indiana Jones, MCU, Edgar Wright, Christopher Nolan. From the biggest blockbusters, to the most dumbfounding flops, the streaming wars and more, Mad About Movies keeps your movie itch scratched without taking this whole thing too seriously. Why do fans love some Rotten films and hate some Fresh ones? What did critics make of a cult classic before it earned its cult status? In this weekly podcast, we go deep and settle the score on some of the most beloved – and despised – movies and TV shows ever made, directly taking on the statement we hear from so many fans: Rotten Tomatoes can be wrong.

Start to finish, it's a fucking hilarious episode
I now hate every movie I once loved. Love this podcast! Rethink everything you think you know. I think When Harry Met Sally is one of the greatest movies ever and i'll die on that hill.
this podcast is hysterical. "amazon one star reviews" is easily the best segment of each episode.
There can never be enough said about the hotness of Margot Robbie.
straight men guffawing about gay sex and death by HIV. NO thankyou
"Nobody's deep-faking Cate Blanchett porn."
Hysterical. Just a dismal attempt at putting down Star Wars, but pure gold for the Kevins to shit on. The Audience Reviews alone make this a Must Listen.
These guys made the misguided decision to follow me on Twitter, and because of that, I found their bitchin podcast! I'm only the 6th episode but man, the episodes are hysterical. The banter and shit-talking is great, as are the guests and their valiant efforts to take down some of my favorite movies. Give them a listen!
This is a great episode! I love the idea of deconstructing these popular films! Such a great podcast!
